Six-year-old Calum Lister has achieved the accolade of Market Weighton Beaver Scout of the Year for 2016.

Calum arrived at the town’s Beavers group six months ago not knowing anyone, as he dose not attend a local school.

Six months later he has been to the group camp, made new friendships and his confidence has grown.

He has gone from a shy beaver Scout to a very confident beaver Scout who always tries his best.
